About Greg Harvath

My family and I live on site in this historical, former B&B property. We love our home and are honored to be its care takers.

Greg Harvath purchased this studio in 2005

Why Greg Harvath chose Michigan

My family and I returned to the Midwest in 2003 to raise our son near family. When the Goshorn House went on the market, we went to see her and immediately felt at home. We were looking for a place near or in walking distance to town. Luck was on our side with this one.

What makes this studio unique

A great feel to this property with its courtyard, gardens, and front porch. We love to sit on the front porch and watch local passerby's and you will too!

Great stay at Goshorn House Guest Suite

We had a great stay at the property (2 adults and 2 children). It was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Greg was really friendly and helpful. Would love to stay again if we are ever in the area. Pool was lovely too.

We stayed for a couple nights but it would be a great spot for a whole week. Very new, modern, clean with all the amenities and a terrific pool area. Right in the heart of Douglas - easy to walk to town. We will definitely be back!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I enjoyed our stay at Goshorn House. It was comfortable, very well kept and the pool was fantastic. It is located close to everything in Douglas and only a short drive to Saugatuck. Highly recommended.

Clean, comfortable, cozy, conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This property is, as promised, suitable for 4 (2 adults, 2 children). Greg is an absolutely wonderful host who welcomed us and gave us all the scoop on what to do in the area. It is walking distance to several local eateries and attractions. Will be sure to recommend and use again.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Goshorn House guest suite surpassed our expectations. It is immaculate and beautifully decorated. The location is quiet but within walking distance to the lake and town with great restaurants, shops, etc. Greg was friendly and extremely helpful. We highly recommend this property and hope to return next summer.
